Jeremy THOMAS

“Steel”, Thomas says, “is quite malleable and actually a lot like clay (though admittedly it only exhibits those characteristics at upwards of 1000 degrees Fahrenheit)”. After welding forms together and then subsequently heating them, Thomas injects them with pressurized air, inflating, or “growing” them into their final shape. Finally, he paints them with metallic car paint. In the case of some of the smallest pieces, he used nail lacquer for the first time, which expanded his range of colors. The largest sculptures are inflated without the heating process by adding air pressure into cold forms progressively. He can also ingeniously reverse the process and deflate them using a special technique involving extreme cold. Occasionally, his sculptures can explode during the process; Thomas is a risk taker playing with the limits of the material’s resistance. Some of his new sculptures are part inflated and part deflated.

Jeremy Thomas visually, technically, and conceptually unifies dualities, paradoxes and oxymorons: steel carefully molded by air, a creative process that mixes planned processes and expectations of the general shapes with the unpredictability of results in the details and parts of the sculptures. The sensual three-dimensional shapes come from strict geometrical assembled flat panels, a play between natural, rusted surfaces of the sculptures and their glossy, painted counterparts. Additionally he mixes an inflating process and a deflating process in the same sculpture. Jeremy Thomas is also a great colorist. Every color is unique and very meticulously selected to combine with each unique form and with the color of the rusty surface. Visitors stay for a long time during the exhibition. The vision of each sculpture changes so drastically from one angle to another, that it is a true experience of discovery just by walking around each one.
